To peform the Davies Test, place two pieces of tape on the floor 36 inches apart. Have the client, or athlete, begin in a push up position with one hand on each piece of tape. The client will then quickly touch their right hand to their left hand, continuing to perform alternating touches on each side for a period of 15 seconds. Record the number of lines touched by both hands.
Repeat the test three times.
*Note - the Davies test should not be performed with individuals who lack sufficient shoulder stability.
